Wick Cottage was a pair of 18th and 19th century cottages that had been linked together in an unsympathetic manner in the 1960’s. The brief was to create a stylish and comfortable new home by creating a layout of larger and simpler spaces that would reveal as much of the original stone and timber structure of the original building as possible. It was also important to better relate the internal spaces to the attractive landscape of the surrounding valley.

Modern details such as the cantilevered staircase, wide boarded floors, furniture and light fittings are installed using traditional materials that work well with the natural rustic quality of the building shell. The character of the original architecture is carefully repaired and revealed to create a unique sequence of spaces that accommodate contemporary living with a great sense of style.
